Aaron Huey: Mitakuye Oyasin
In this powerful new book of photographs, Aaron Huey portrays both the broken social landscape and the ceremonial warrior culture that permeates Pine Ridge today. This body of work goes far beyond the obvious poverty and into the world of the tribe’s visions and dreams. Huey, a photographer who has covered war and crises in some of the most far-flung places on the planet for magazines like the New Yorker and The New York Times, stumbled upon Pine Ridge seven years ago. Since then he has created one of the single largest bodies of work on a contemporary Indian Reservation. His images stand as a chilling testament to the complexity and difficulties facing the Lakota Sioux tribe and all indigenous people.
